Slide Topper Spring
I got a Care Free slide topper that is making a thumping sound in rhythm as the slide goes in and out. The topper is still retracting just fine, although I can see some slack in the tension as the slide moves in. When the slide is extended, the topper sags a little as well. I'm guessing I have a partially broken spring. I have replace the awnings in these toppers before, so I'm familiar with taking the roller off.
My question is: do these toppers have a coil spring in them, or is it a leaf type spring? Is there a kit sold to replace this springs, or am I just better off buying a new roller? Would CW sell the parts I need, or is there a site on line to order what ever it is I need?
If you've played with these topper before, I would appreciate your recommendation on how to fix this.
